Even though I am away from home nothing makes me happier than indulging myself in a spot of baking. On Sunday afternoon Kate, Seb and Jake went out for a stroll and I had the kitchen all to myself. I thought I would experiment with a recipe idea for Kate's wedding cake, Kate only wants a very simple cake. I've already had a few trial runs, do you remember the pink layered cake I made a couple of months ago.
I didn't make quite enough butter cream to fully cover the top and sides - but it did taste yummy!
I also made little butter biscuits which Kate is going to serve with tea and coffee after the wedding breakfast. Ideally we need a small rectangular cutter and a stamper for the design. I had a fiddle with a cocktail stick and a little bit of fondant icing.
Not the required standard yet but the recipe worked well - its just the execution of the task that needs refining - also the right tools for the job.
|can't resist making collages at the moment!|
All together it was a fun and productive baking afternoon.
